Salma Hayek Is the Latest Actress to Share a Disturbing Story About Harvey Weinstein

Remind me:

Harvey Weinstein is an iconic film mogul who produced movies like “Pulp Fiction” and “Shakespeare in Love.” He’s now known as an alleged sexual predator who routinely harassed actresses and has been accused of raping multiple women, and the revelations about his behavior sparked a movement across Hollywood, politics and various other industries to expose sexual harassment and abuse.

What’s happening now?

Actress Salma Hayek is the latest to share her Weinstein story, writing a moving piece in the New York Times about her experience working with him on the film “Frida.”

“I don’t think he hated anything more than the word ‘no,’” she wrote. “The range of his persuasion tactics went from sweet-talking me to that one time when, in an attack of fury, he said the terrifying words, ‘I will kill you, don’t think I can’t.’”

Glenn’s take:

Glenn noted that Hayek’s account probably won’t be the last we hear, and it’s definitely a terrifying example of how serious the allegations against Weinstein are.

“It is clear he made the most important experience of her career a living hell,” Glenn said. “Salma Hayek will not be the last person to add to the mountain of allegations against Weinstein.”

GLENN: “I will kill you, don’t think I can’t.”

Those are the cruel words Harvey Weinstein reportedly said to Salma Hayek.

The actress is the latest and one of the most high-profile women to share her frightening experience with Weinstein.

In a shocking essay published by the New York Times, Hayek detailed her hellish encounters with the disgraced producer.

She met Weinstein when she approached his company Miramax to help finance and distribute her film, Frida.

He agreed, but his involvement came with a hefty price: her mental and physical wellbeing.

She claims that Weinstein repeatedly stalked her and asked for sexual favors.

When she declined his advances in private, he made a demand for a sex scene in the film with her co-star, Ashley Judd, who was also harassed by Weinstein. An emotionally battered Hayek begrudgingly agreed because the future of the film was at stake.

Frida went on to win Two Academy Awards.

But Hayek clearly lost when she partnered with Weinstein. After reading her essay, it’s clear he made the most important experience of her career a living hell.

Salma Hayek will not be the last person to add to the mountain of allegations against Weinstein, but her account is noteworthy because it draws the line between Weinstein and the other men accused of sexual misconduct. It’s clear Weinstein is in a league of his own.

Glenn says we’re at a possible TURNING POINT toward dictatorship

Glenn says we're at exactly the same place so many countries have faced before: a turning point possibly towards dictatorship. It may not end that way — but it's time we WAKE UP and realize that's where we're heading. Eric Clapton is now facing cancelation, and if the far left can do that to a rock n roll LEGEND, what can they do to you?

Refugee: 'American Wokeism Worse Than North Korea' | Yeonmi Park | Ep 111

Yeonmi Park experienced freedom for the first time at 13, when she watched "Titanic." She didn't see it in a plush movie theater seat; she watched it over the course of several days because electricity is sporadic in North Korea, where she grew up. "We don't have a word for oppression," Yeonmi tells Glenn. "There is no hope. There is no moving forward. You are doomed." Against unbelievable odds, Yeonmi escaped and eventually made it to New York City. Then, she went to Columbia University, where she couldn't believe how American students defined "oppression." She and Glenn discuss the ridiculousness of pronoun checks, the consequences of White House-led censorship, the importance of the Second Amendment, the authoritarianism of Big Tech, and the insanity of corporations' love affair with China. But even more shockingly, she explains her fear that where her new country is heading could be worse than what she escaped: "Even North Korea wasn't as crazy as American wokeism."

Glenn Beck: Rand Paul was RIGHT to say Dr. Fauci LIED about gain-of-function

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.

Marxist Methods: Debunking the Left's LIES About Critical Race Theory

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.
